The Duggar family is no stranger to controversy, and now a new scandal has rocked the infamous Christian clan. Jana Duggar's rumored ex-boyfriend, Caleb Williams, is facing sexual assault charges including two counts of sexual abuse against a minor.

The latest scandal follows the massive shake-up the Duggar family saw back in 2015, when a police reports surfaced detailing Josh Duggar's molestation of multiple young girls, including his sisters, in the family home between 2002 and 2003.

Now, Duggar-adjacent Williams, 24, has been accused sexually assaulting an underage victim between 2015 and 2016. Jana Duggar, 28, was rumored to have been romantically involved with Williams last year.

Williams was arrested on November 26 in Logan County, Illinois, according to court documents obtained by Radar. Who is Caleb Williams? 

1. Sexual assault 

According to the court documents, Williams has been charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse that took place "on or between May 29, 2015 and August 1, 2016" in Williams' hometown of Logan County, Illinois. 

Williams has also been charged with a second, more severe count in which he is accused of "placing his penis in the vagina" of the victim. In both cases, Williams is accused of assaulting a victim “who was at least 13 years of age but under 17 years of age.”

2. Relationship with Jana 

Jana Duggar was rumored to have been romantically linked to Williams last year, although neither party confirmed the rumors. Unlike many of her siblings, Duggar has forgone the family tradition of courtship in favor of modern dating and relationships. Williams was frequently spotted accompanying the famous family throughout late 2017. However, Williams later denied the rumors in a since-deleted Facebook post, writing, "Now to clear the fog and avoid any confusion: Read my lips. I am not dating Jana Duggar."
